Black Acre is a label to have an eye (and ear) on, otherwise you’d miss out on a lot of good music from a diverse scene of underground producers. Last year’s albums by Blue Daisy or Hyetal have found many fans, and there’s no need to argue about the talents that Fantastic Mr Fox, Lukid, DZA or 1000names are. You find a bit of all that on the label’s new Rebuilds compilation.
01. Fantastic Mr Fox – Sketches (SBTRKT remix)
02. Hyetal – Diamond Islands (Boddika remix)
03. Blue Daisy & Anneka – Raindrops (John Talabot’s Cosmic rework)
04. Hyetal – Phoenix (Fantastic Mr Fox remix)
05. Memotone – Multicolour (Lukid remix)
06. 1000names – Pocket Calculator (Lynx & Hellrazor)
07. DZA – Bullseye (feat Mujuice & Non – Dizz1 remix)
08. Hyetal – Searchlight (Stay+)
09. Blue Daisy & Anneka – Blood Petal Roses (Sunken Foal remix)
10. Von D – Truth (Tes La Rok remix)
Many of these tracks have so far been available on vinyl only, so make sure not to miss it if you don’t collect records. For me, the Phoenix Remix (listen below) makes it worth buying alone.
You can buy Black Acre presets Rebuilds from fine places such as Boomkat, Bleep – or iTunes.
People don’t get tired remixing Colonel Abram’s eighties classic Trapped (even Boards of Canada did it), but it’s worth it if the result is as good as this 1000names version.
Unfortunately, the download expired since I first came across this – sorry for the late post. However, the Bulgarian duo just released their second album and got a bunch of other things going on at SoundCloud.
Make sure to Check their website for more!
Taken off their Illuminated Man, “Secondary Fauna” by Bulgaria’s 1000names got this nice video directed by Vitto Valentinov.
You can get yourself a copy of the album at Boomkat or Rush Hour!
Error Broadcast has been putting out great music for quite a while now, introducing me to new artists such as Shlohmo, AEED, Swede:art or Pixelord. So far their policy was to give away the MP3s for free and selling only the high quality files – a great way to build up a reputation out there.
Next week will see the release of Error Broadcast’s first vinyl-release, a 7-inch from Frankfurt based turntablist and beatsmith B-Ju. While still a youngster, he has already released single tracks through various labels and won a remix contest by Yuksek & Amanda Blank.
Limited to only 100 copies, the disc comes with two originals plus remixes from 1000names and Hermutt Lobby. As usual, Error Broadcast will also put out a digital release with nine tracks in total, including additional remixes from Mux Mool and Benny B. Blonco.01. Brand New Dust
02. Future Versus
03. High Heels
04. Dog Day
06. Dog Day (1000Names Remix)
07. Philly Extra (Herrmutt Lobby Remix)
08. Philly Run (Mux Mool Remix)
09. Soja Extra (Benny B. Blonco Remix)
Copies of the 7-inch are now available for pre-order exclusively from HHV. Everybody else should watch out for the digital release dropping on Bandcamp starting next Monday.
